Then you can gauge them in my absence and read them as scum, because only scum would want to alienate a town player to the point of making them leave the game. And people are free to vote for me. But give reasons.

Vote: yuma

Fuck you

also want to look at the wagons a little bit more in depth. The lack of vote counts makes this difficult, but I can try and sort them out in a way that makes them a bit more readable and useful.

OK:

Day1 Catch-up time, just making notes as things stand out. If you didn't have anything it is cause stuff didn't stand out, not that you weren't posting

Player list:
1. Gkrieg13 - 140 agree that his catch up post was scummy
2. Awaclus - absolutely nothing worthwhile to read him by. He will disagree. He always does. Far superior lynch option to EgorK (confirmation bias working here as I know EgorK was town). oh, now i have something scummy to read him on, his move to 2.7. Town!Awaclus wouldn't move a vote here I don't think. Too useful to town. Same with move to EgorK (oh that came after the softclaim.... so nevermind on that second part).
3. Haddock - 218 townie post from haddock; haddock is doing some huge posts. Reads town, at least for now.
4. Pingpongsam - 265 see below - 400 is a good enough post; 438 made me throw up in my mouth; 452 is provably false
5. Silverspawn - 114 first scummy post of game; 160 felt like posts he made in Treehugger mafia; 267 see below; 349 scummy vote moving from ss to iguana; pitting themselves more against each other; scummy vote on haddock 505
6. Joseph
7. Iguanaiguana - 245 - why want to play like awaclus? 285 - good post from iguana, going back and pulling research to prevent a lynch is generally more of a town play. Only way this makes sense as mafia is if Joseph/ii are partners together. This that he is town + his case (290) on townie 2.7 make me more suspicious of those that sheeped him. Vote Counts are scarce, will have to manually figure out who those people are but looks like most people voted before he made his case... hmmmm.... super townie tunneling. I mean not townie to tunnel, but he has got to be town the way he is doing it. And then you had to go an self vote and ruin it all... Boo
8. ADK - I get the others sticking hard and fast to Joseph, but not ADK. I didn't see anything else to make me think he was scummy except for this.
9. 2.7 - hasn't been counter claimed so rereading with assumption he is town?
10. Chairs: had town reads on:     had scum reads on: Joseph
11. EgorK
12. J Reggie
13. Seprix - 189 see below; 253 see below; another scummy post (336) saying he would be fine lynching but doesn't actually want to. same as 382; 499 - lurker lynches in later days make no sense to me - bad vote on haddock; scummy vote moving back to joseph late.

Thoughts on major wagons:

Joseph (6): Gkrieg13, 2.7, Awaclus, Iguanaiguana, ADK, Reggie

seemed like a lazy wagon, but maybe not scummy. I didn't get scum reads on anything that Joseph said; felt like his reaction to being hammered was nullish to townish; don't like Seprix's vote (189) on Reggie for putting him at L-1. Why focus on only the L-1 vote when any unvote could have moved him back to L-2. Don't get scum reads from gkrieg/awaclus wanting hammers. Fake hammers are mildly annoying and generally not actually trying to be fake  but accidental, but don't think they are scummy. Seprix comes off as super scummy in general in regard to Joseph. His 253 in particular. So is PPS coming in late (265) on the parade (same as ss, 267). Oh man! So did chairs (272)! Well if he did it and is town then everyone else who did it must be town right? Right? Nah.

2.7 voters: Joseph early, ss (230), iguana (243), gkrieg (247), reggie (249), seprix (250) (don't know if there were any unvotes in this process) iguana makes his case here (haddock 290)

By time vote count came around was at:
(328) 2.7 (5): silverspawn, Iguanaiguana, gkrieg13, Seprix, Haddock

EgorK: 2.7 starts; ss jump starts, iguana joins-leaves; joseph joins; J Reggie joins; gkrieg joins after the Joseph wagon; ADK joins

Egork (7): 2.7, silverspawn, J Reggie, Joseph2302, A Drowned Kernel, Haddock, Awaclus

Joseph2302 second wagon (6): A Drowned Kernel, Awaclus, pingpongsam, chairs, iguanaiguana, Seprix (second go round) I think here that if Joseph is scum another scum partner buss hammers him. Second time getting to L-1, lynch looks eminent (EgorK known to be town says he will hammer). So I don't think he is scum.

2.7 second wagon: gkrieg13, Haddock, Seprix, Iguganaiguana, EgorK


tl:dr

Town reads on: iguanaiguana, Joseph, Haddock
Null on: Reggie (lots of people reading him town, I am not so certain but probably the towniest of the null players), gkrieg
Scummy on: ss, seprix, ADK - mostly on ss, somewhat on seprix, kinda on ADK
scummy at least partially due to a bias: Awaclus, pps more on Awaclus than pps, but also just can't read

vote: ss

it is late, but I'll formalize the posts and why they stuck out to me more tomorrow.

I think I am the best mafia player ever.

That would be Teproc. Have you seen him play? He's fantastic.

Have I seen him play? Son. I modded the first game he was in. He is fantastic.

Let me just say, I feel really good about our chances here, unless chairs was scum. Yuma is a really good player and we didn't have the night kill. We should be able to find these scum with no problem.

Vote: J Reggie

Could you explain this? From what I've read, you're a much stronger town player than chairs, so if you're town that's good. I'm really excited to be in a game with you.

There is a vig power in this game right? If so you certainly want chairs over me. I certainly don't think I am necessarily stronger. We have both had highs and lows. I tend to post more than chairs and therefore more vocal but that might not even be the case here.

And while I appreciate the compliment this does have sort of a "let's sheep Yuma" feel to it that leaves me wary. It is too easy to say that and then turn against me with "he is too good to be wrong" if I end up being wrong, which... You know sometimes I am... Especially coming in blind Day2.

It was this post that made me vote for you. It seemed not genuine to me for some reason

Cause it wasn't. I think I am the best mafia player ever (or at least a really, really good one) but no one has been able to fully recognize that of late. But I can't just come out and say that.... People want you to be humble and not say you are better than others and stuff.

They may be voting for you based off of chair's actions the day before.

Then say as such.

If another person successively votes for me without stating a reason I will drop this game and get mod killed. This has been three in a row.

I am here as a favor to RR. If you think I am scum or want me gone from the game state a reason. Otherwise I will assume you just don't want me to be playing here and leave.

Your reason why you can't be scum sounded vaguely like a thing you might make up as scum. It was also political, I have a thing where I'm pissing people off this game and voting you seemed like a good way to continue it.

The thing is... It isn't something I could make up as scum. I mean... I got placed into this game when I got placed into it. There isn't anything to make up there.

There is a chance that RR might have dropped me into this game as scum at the start of day, but I would have protested it and really... you have been a mod. Would you see yourself making that decision to sub in a mafia player at the end of night rather than at the start?

But your point is correct. As either mafia or town I would be trying to take advantage of this situation. My posting it doesn't make me scummy, it is good play to try and make myself look as townie as possible as town. So what we have to look at is what is most likely that a mod would do. I think my point is far more valid than the other option.

Woah, woah, woah. Your reaction to this is going to just make more people vote for you.

Then you can gauge them in my absence and read them as scum, because only scum would want to alienate a town player to the point of making them leave the game. And people are free to vote for me. But give reasons. Or at the very least, quote a post that I made that was worthy of a vote. One vote like that is fine. But I have three votes on me from people w/o reasons. That is a trend and a trend that isn't a good one.

Vote: Yuma

Is this based off something I said or a Day2 RVS vote like what I assume Joseph's was as well?

Also that's probably worth noting for this game, since I've always found you townie even when you're scum. So I'll try to be more careful of that here.

Oh, don't worry. I am town here. Like I said, I think it pretty obvious given how I came into the game at the start of Day2. A mod wouldn't drop a mafia player in like that when he could have dropped them in during the night to allow night action/discussion.

How do we know that, other than you saying it?

Well we know that he didn't put me in during the night. Otherwise he would have said as such at that time.

And otherwise it just makes sense. He asked for subs before the end of day1. I replied relatively quick after that. There was plenty of time for him to put me in during the night if there was a reason to do so (ie if I was mafia).

I mean not putting me in so I could talk use night actions if I was mafia would be a pretty significant disadvantage... Right?

PS I really need to read the setup and the game itself. I know basically nothing at this point and am subbing in as a favor to RR. Don't expect me to automatically be my usual self.

Also I subbed in at the beginning of day2 and was not present at all during the night for what that is worth, which really should make me very townie as I think RR would have subbed me in earlier if I were scum so I could participate in night action stuff. I don't like to draw those sort of conclusions but man... When they happen I am going to take advantage of them.

Can't you just make a new thread? I mean, you are not jsh, and adding to his works is like spray painting on top of the Mona Lisa.

that seems like an extreme example.

So I finally finished Cryptonomicon.  Not a very fast read, but enjoyable.  It's hard to get into, but once I got towards the latter third, I was anxious to keep reading and see what happens.  Looking online a bit, I see a lot of criticism about the ending.. people complain about his endings in general.  I really don't get the complaints.

It has been on my list for a while, so glad to hear it was enjoyable and will probably try to read it this year. But man... only having it pick up in the latter third is kinda a hard sell for me. I actually mistakenly picked up another of his books thinking it was this, Seveneves, and it ended up being the opposite for me. The first 2/3rds of the book were really good. The last third it started to completely fall apart. Well not fall apart, but it just went in a completely different direction that I thought would have made a really good second book because it wasn't expanded enough for me.

I have read a lot of really good books this year. Will probably do a mid-year post in the next little while to talk about them rather than waiting until the end of the year cause this has just been a spectacular year for me reading really good books.
